About This Car
1987 Mercedes-Benz R107 300 SL
Impala Brown (4410) with Grey MB Tex interior (178) and Dark Brown Fabric Soft Top (8023)
A low mileage late model SL in unusual Impala Brown with Brown Fabric Roof.
This car is superbly presented throughout and has clearly enjoyed a cosseted life. It boats an impressive history file detailing a significant level of expenditure throughout it’s life.
To describe this car as ‘brown’ is to do an injustice to the coachwork. Impala Brown is a colour that appears to change it’s shade in different lights. The last few years have seen a resurgence in interest in browns and beiges, with manufacturers like Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and BMW leading the way with reinvigorated shades of this colour that many thought was confined to the history books! Impala Brown has a depth to it, giving this SL a timeless and contemporary look despite it’s age.
A superb and rare colour combination which makes this a highly desirable classic.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?
Although the R107 is renowned for build quality, there is one chink in the armour - the bulkhead. Many cars that present well from the outside are hiding internal rust. Water from outside the car should drain out through specially designed channels, but over time, these become blocked forcing water inside the car. Once water has breached the blower motor cover in front of the windscreen, it slowly wreaks havoc from inside out. This delicate area did not have rust protection from the factory, and as the metal deteriorates it the water ingress can lead to faulty electrics, damp carpets and musty smells inside the cabin.
All our cars come with a 36 month bulkhead warranty.
